When One Great Organization Introduces You to Another!

An amazing thing happened last week! The lovely Helen Melbourne of Creative Reuse Toronto messaged me. She wanted to know if I could use more cast-off bike parts! Which ...of course I do (may not ever again ...but at that moment I most definitely did!) From there she introduced me to some fine people at the newly opened Culture Link - Bike Hub. They are doing something amazing there (see below) and they're saving me whatever they cannot! The Bike Hub at 15 Tobermory Drive is a collaborative project between CultureLink Community and Settlement Services, the City of Toronto’s Tower Renewal and Solid Waste Management, and Toronto Community Housing.  The goals are to encourage a culture of repair and reuse, and increase mobility in the community by making bicycles a feasible transportation option. We are now accepting applications for the Fall Earn-A-Bike Program, which runs on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. from September 25th to November 1st .

Participants will not only get to keep the bike they rebuild, they will also receive a helmet, lock, lights and a bell and be recognized for their achievements with a graduation ceremony.  Community Service Hours can be earned as well through volunteering, and all programming is free!
Registrations can be submitted online using the Earn-a-Bike Registration Form.  This session is focused on Youth, grades 9 and up.  You can find more information at www.culturelink.ca/bike-hub and on social media: Instagram @culturelinkbikehub and Twitter @CLinkBikeHub
